Give us a little intro into the secrets of business. What's the recipe for a perfect lineup?
Ha - I wouldn’t possibly know the answer to that in a big sense but for me a nice eclectic line up with a few big names to help you sell the tickets and then as many great DJs as you can fit in!
Is there someone you have been chasing and couldn't get for a festival?
Well this time last year it would have been Harvey but finally got him on board for this year, well happy with that, last night of the festival is gonna be a big one.
How many emails do you send per festival?
My word - I have no idea but for all the bookings it must be in the several thousands!
Futureboogie is a record label and club night, which now also extends to the booking agency and management company. What connects all of the branches?
Actually the agency no longer exists as an individual entity and Steve is now really focussing on being part of the Agency Group and managing Crazy P these days so I guess that leaves me to handle the label and parties – that’s definitely enough to handle!
You've got some great names such as Crazy P, Christophe, Outboxx on your label - anything exciting coming up?
Yeah been a great run of releases and we have some fantastic music coming up - EP’s from PBR Streetgang & Xpress 2, Outboxx, Maxxi Soundsystem, Lauer, Fernando, Felix Dickinson and loads more in the pipeline so keep them peeled for those. Also just started a new monthly radio show for KMAH in Leeds where we will be showcasing a lot of our new music so worth a look at that as well.
You've marked Bristol as one of the hotspots like London and Berlin. What are your events all about?
There’s a lot of exciting stuff going on in Bristol at the moment so I guess you could say it was a bit of a hotspot yeah in a very different way to London or Berlin though! In terms of our parties we still do a big one at Motion every year with as many great names as we can fit in and the odd couple of label parties in off location spots. We now do regular parties at our bar The Love Inn and try and play as much as possible around the city still, we are actually away a lot these days though.
